YAY i finally have a Sweater!!! :woot: If anyone remembers I was actually working on a sweater for my DS...but that just went ALL WRONG :ick: It was so bad I didn't even what to post what it looked like in the end...:teehee: So I scrapped it. Then I decided I would REALLY take my time ...pray :pray:... and.....TA-DA!!!!! I'm so proud of myself :woohoo: So this is for my DD its done with Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick & Quick in Raspberry. The pattern is actually http://knitty.com/ISSUEfall03/PATTaccordion.html . I made a few changes to make it easier for me. (changed: yarn, stitch type, no pocket hanging in the back). Ok so it might seem like i changed the whole pattern...I don't know how to explain it but i know for sure if i didn't find that pattern with all the measurements and drawings i wouldn't have ended up with what i have :aww:

Your's is quite different to the original pattern, but oh, so pretty!

Well done! Your time and patience paid off.

I might make one just like yours too.

Very sweet!

I have to ask, did you cast on the same number of stitches or did you change that as well? :)

Lovely job!

12-09-2006, 02:11 PM
i had to change the number of stitches because i was using a chunky/bulky yarn that used size 13 needles :teehee:
